Decent Livewire review

Not coming from the same old Harley hate club, just a good EV bike review.

My buddy got back from riding it the other week. He was raving about how thenpower is delivered. And how well it felt to ride in the corners. But still a novelty.

Overpriced, and under delivered - HD as usual.

Sounds well sorted and I’d ride one happily, but I wouldn’t event begin to contemplate spending 30k for one.

Good review from Lemmy on Revzilla. The bike does not suck function wise. Makes me wonder if HD would not be kind enough to slip a good gas engine into such a package.

Gotta love Lemmy - he is a colorful writer and a fun read

Is it better than a Zero bike of similar pricepoint though?

They don't have one of a similar price point. The best model with all the premium upgrades is still nearly 10k less, lighter in weight, better performance, more range, and better charging options.

Lifestyle has its price.

A big HD dealer local to me has a Hooters for dirty old man boob oogling, outdoor amphitheater for listening to a cover band's rendition of "Born To Be Wild" for the 1,000th time, and riding instruction course (that likely never gets used) all in close proximity.

The place is a complete shrine to all things Harley Davidson, and it seems they thought of everything.

Well now more than ever they will need free beer and hot dogs!!

What else are they going to do while their bike charges at the dealer lol

This is just a ploy by hd to get their customers to stay in their showroom longer so they can buy more $40 hd tshirts
